Green Bean, Radish & Basil Salad with Scallions

The original recipe calls for shallots. Here, we’ve substituted CSA scallions.

1/8 cup finely chopped scallions
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
1/2 pound fresh green beans
1 cup radishes, cut into wedges
1/4 cup basil, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup thin shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Stir scallions and vinegar in a large mixing bowl and let sit to blend.

Boil beans in a large pot of salted water until crisp-tender. Drain; plunge into a large bowl of ice-cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain again; dry on paper towels.

Add beans to bowl with scallions. Add remaining ingredients except cheese. Toss and pour onto serving platter. Top with shaved cheese.

Serves 3.
